Unsainted

Oh, I’ll never kill myself to save my soul/I was gone but how was I to know?
I didn’t come this far to sink so low/I’m finally holding on to letting go

I’m just weathering a rough patch… another villain with an itch to scratch
Denial is the darkest when you live in a hole
Why does the Hell make you feel so cold?
Make a move and you pay for it/Pick a Lord and you pray to it
You’re so demanding when you want the truth, but your stories don’t read for me

Oh, I’ll never kill myself to save my soul/I was gone but how was I to know?
I didn’t come this far to sink so low/I’m finally holding on to letting go

Indecision Overload/Keep a buckle on the Devil and your eyes on the road
Reaching out for the hand of God, but did you Think- You’d- Shake- Your- Own?
This Killing Field is all grown over- the Motherfucker wants it wild
Go sew your oats in alphabetical order/the Anti-Antagonist is back- in- style
MYOPIC/Cannot See Straight/DYSTOPIC/One Sin Too Late
You got to lie if you want to believe, but your Bibles don’t work on me

Oh, I’ll never kill myself to save my soul/I was gone but how was I to know?
I didn’t come this far to sink so low/I’m finally holding on to letting… GO

Did you think you could win? And fill me in?
Did you think you could do it again? I’m not your sin
I was all that you wanted and more- but you didn’t want me
I was more than you thought I could be
So I’m setting you free- I’m setting you free

You’ve Killed The Saint In Me
How Dare You Martyr Me
You’ve Killed The Saint In Me

Oh, I’ll never kill myself to save my soul/I was gone but how was I to know?
I didn’t come this far to sink so low/I’m finally holding on to letting go

You’ve Killed The Saint In Me/How Dare You Martyr Me
You’ve Killed The Saint In Me/How Dare You Martyr Me

 

Birth Of The Cruel

I’m just a Judas, looking for a silver line… and tomorrow is still a step behind
Hey Hey Drama, I’d love to be a waste of your time…
Oh no thanks so much for wasting mine, so hear me out…
Let’s hear it for the Damaged/Who understands but the Broken?
Developed in the arms of spite
I’m all fucked up and I make it look good/Adrenalin Sight tonight
I’m overthrown… I’m over your Throne… I’m over it
SICK-SICKENED-SICKENING-I’M STRICKEN BY THE FIST
BLESSED ARE THE FIRES THAT HAVE BURNED ME
LISTEN TO THIS-THE LESSON IS-NEVER UNDERESTIMATE THE AGONY
…DEATH OF THE FOOL… BIRTH OF THE CRUEL…

Remember how you spent the best part of forever in a state of pure disease
It was another thing altogether to forget that you brought out the worst in me
Hey Karma, you don’t feel like I do… you just wish you’d hate like I do
We are the Bitter/The Maladjusted and Wise/Fighting off a Generation too uptight
We’re all dressed up with nobody to kill- The Rhetoric Stops Tonight
I’m overthrown… I’m over your Throne… I’m over it
SICK-SICKENED-SICKENING-I’M STRICKEN BY THE FIST
BLESSED ARE THE FIRES THAT HAVE BURNED ME
LISTEN TO THIS-THE LESSON IS-NEVER UNDERESTIMATE THE AGONY
…DEATH OF THE FOOL… BIRTH OF THE CRUEL…

Now’s not the time for denying- shifting the focus to scare
Let’s not forget we’re all guilty
All three dimensions polluted by earnest despair-
I’m overthrown… I’m over your Throne… I’m over it

 

Death Because Of Death

Death because of death because of you.
Death because of death because of you.
Death because of death because of you.
(…)

 

Nero Forte

I’m never enough/You bleed me dry/Using me up
Dissatisfied… and used/Another key to the empty spot in you
I’m sick as a fuck/I’m in my prime/What do you want?
I guess it’s time… to see/If you’re lost in Hell you’ll find no peace
Wade-Through Hate-And Fear… I haven’t felt like this in years
Not much left, so uprooted- Fists clenched tight in the pockets of my hoodie
And I know where I need to go, but the voice of reason can’t say no
It’s in the eyes… and heart/Just the latest psycho off the charts

(That’s What You Do Best)
A HOME LIKE YOURS IS UPSIDE DOWN
Too much animosity- nobody does it better than the enemy
A HOPE LIKE YOURS WON’T HELP ME NOW
You can do your worst to me/at the end of the day that’s what you do best (2x)

I Know- and even if I didn’t I would- Lie So- Many would believe it
Stand up and resist the chains of all the people in belligerent sick restraint
I wasn’t enough/you bled me dry-which way is up?
Oh, you’re a lie… and a fake/I hope the truth is not too late

(That’s What You Do Best)
A HOME LIKE YOURS IS UPSIDE DOWN
Too much animosity- nobody does it better than the enemy
A HOPE LIKE YOURS WON’T HELP ME NOW
You can do your worst to me/at the end of the day that’s what you do best (2x)

(WHY) Why was it easy for you (DID) Did I deserve the abuse
(I) I can’t believe I let it (NOT) Not what I wanted (SEE) See through your bullshit
(YOUR) You’re so traumatic (TRUE) True to your form of (FACE) Every consequence
(UN) Unintimidated (TIL) Til’ the very end (IT) It’ll never happen
(WAS) Was it all a lie (TOO) Many motherfuckers (LATE)
THAT’S WHAT YOU DO BEST
(LIE) THAT’S WHAT YOU DO BEST
(LIE) THAT’S WHAT YOU DO BEST

(That’s What You Do Best)
A HOME LIKE YOURS IS UPSIDE DOWN
Too much animosity- nobody does it better than the enemy
A HOPE LIKE YOURS WON’T HELP ME NOW
You can do your worst to me/at the end of the day that’s what you do best (2x)
THAT’S WHAT YOU DO BEST

 

Critical Darling

God’s in a coma- put Faith in a life support
Running away won’t feel the same if you reach your metaphysical last resort
Oh Malevolence and Purgatory give you pause
It’s a miracle you haven’t broken any laws
We Are Not Entitled To Surviving/so keep your friends and your enemies thriving
(GOOD FOR YOU) what a cliché… (JUST NOT TRUE) what a giveaway
(WHAT COMES NOW) can’t be the last one FALLING DOWN
Every time this happens I’m breaking a promise I made to a version of me
Why can’t I covet and keep it away from the Leeches who want to deceive?
WHAT IS COMING HAS BEGUN. It’s something that you got to see.
We lie and say that it’s too late for some redemption.
WHAT IS COMING HAS BEGUN. An ending I won’t live to see.
We tell ourselves it can’t be hell if there’s no heaven…

Once again, we got suffocated in a sick perversion of a spider’s web
Crawling over all the spent, digested pieces- celebrate the dead
Here come all the judging eyes, got to pave the road with your best intentions
I only wish you could picture a future that doesn’t resemble your crazy inventions
(GOOD ON YOU) I don’t mean it (DREAM COME TRUE) I don’t need it
(WHAT GOES UP) Another Hollow One MUST COME DOWN
Every time this happens I’m breaking a promise I made to a version of me
Why can’t I covet and keep it away from the Leeches who want to deceive?
WHAT IS COMING HAS BEGUN. It’s something that you got to see.
We lie and say that it’s too late for some redemption.
WHAT IS COMING HAS BEGUN. An ending I won’t live to see.
We tell ourselves it can’t be hell if there’s no heaven…

A mirror only works if you open your eyes
But even then you have to understand what’s inside
The easy part is always hardest to see
I know you’ll never guess, but darling you’re so critical

This is a cave-in, the weight of the catalyst
Just wait- let the games begin- going to tell you all about it for the savages
(GOOD FOR YOU) not another one (JUST NOT TRUE) not another one
(WHAT COMES NOW) This world is FALLING DOWN
Every time this happens I’m breaking a promise I made to a version of me
Why can’t I covet and keep it away from the Leeches who want to deceive?
WHAT IS COMING HAS BEGUN. It’s something that you got to see.
We lie and say that it’s too late for some redemption.
WHAT IS COMING HAS BEGUN. An ending I won’t live to see.
We tell ourselves it can’t be hell if there’s no heaven…

Oh, you’re so critical…

 

A Liar’s Funeral

A season at an end; a harvest of seclusion and regret
The burning can begin- a period of ash is what you get
The quiet is a curse, but my respect was shown to you by force
Another day too late, another neck too eager for the rope
LIAR LIAR
Yesterday was hard; tomorrow’s just a promise of the same
When friends have all subscribed to spitting on the ground to say my name
Fire on the ice- December in the summer kills the heart
Your hate is no surprise- I guess I have to die to play my part
LIAR LIAR

CLOSE YOUR EYES AND JOIN THE BLIND
SLIT YOUR WRISTS FOR PEACE OF MIND
TURN YOUR BACK AND SHOW US THE TRUTH
THERE’S ONLY ONE WAY TO REMEMBER IT FOR YOU
BURN* BURN* BURN* THE LIAR- BURN* BURN* BURN* THE LIAR
BURN* BURN* BURN* THE LIAR- BURN* BURN* BURN* THE LIAR

Hold The Weight- Never Trust The One Beside You
Carried Away- You Know Just As Much As I Do
Hold The Weight- Do It All For What You Really Love
Carried Away- Use You Up Until They’ve Had Enough

Hold The Weight- Never Trust The One Beside You
Carried Away- You Know Just As Much As I Do
Hold The Weight- Do It All For What You Really Love
Carried Away- Use You Up Until They’ve Had Enough

CLENCH YOUR TEETH AND TIGHTEN YOUR GRIP
STAND UP STRAIGHT- DON’T LET IT SLIP
BURN* BURN* BURN* THE LIAR- BURN* BURN* BURN* THE LIAR

True victims and survivors learn to make war
Don’t want to be the Sad Man Singing anymore
I did it all wrong so I’d get it all right
We’re wasting all the candles- The Dead Need No Light

LIAR LIAR

 

Red Flag

Past just saving- this is like escaping- running wild in the middle of weeds
Eyes can’t see me- careful with your breathing- get away or they get to feed
Strength’s not enough: be defiant- you’re looking for a reason to suffer, you’ll find it
But if you want to live to be better, begin it
Your energy will keep you from getting exhausted and purge it

…You Don’t Own Me/…You Can’t Hold Me
…This Is Beginning/…You Are An Ending
They’ll Smother Their Own Just To Feel You
They’ll Get You Alone Just To Steal You
They’ll Eat You Alive Just To Kill You
Nobody Will Ever Have You
You Used To Be Something Special- Now You’re Nothing New

Vultures salivate- poison to exterminate- it’s the dawn of the Renaissance
-Emancipation- cattle on displacement, you want!! to reason but
THERE IS NO RESPONSE
…I won’t allow this to happen- another situation I feel like I’m trapped in
Nothing is my business and business is gone
I wish you all would fuck off and go back to Hell where you belong

…You Don’t Own Me/…You Can’t Hold Me
…This Is Beginning/…You Are An Ending
They’ll Smother Their Own Just To Feel You
They’ll Get You Alone Just To Steal You
They’ll Eat You Alive Just To Kill You
Nobody Will Ever Have You
You Used To Be Something Special- Now You’re Nothing New

Plague- Don’t Panic- Don’t Believe The Riddle That Confuses You
Bitch- So Manic- I Can See The Light That Exposes You
So Dramatic- Now I’m So Emphatic Means
The Bigger The Mouth That I Can Eat You With
Force of Habit- God You Reek of Your Havoc But
Consider The Sources You’ve Been Tampering With

They’ll Smother Their Own Just To Feel You
They’ll Get You Alone Just To Steal You
They’ll Eat You Alive Just To Kill You
Nobody Will Ever Have You
You Used To Be Something Special- Now You’re Nothing NEW (2X)

Spiders

Well you can go it alone, or keep it in between
The pages of the books you burn so no one gets to read
The fingers pull your stitches tight, but knowing someone’s secret is not enough
Everyone’s a little bit a lot of the time…

THE SPIDERS COME IN SIDE BY SIDE
TWO BY TWO AND NIGHT BY NIGHT
WHO IS FOOD AND WHO IS THROWN AWAY?

When now is not the time, tomorrow disagrees
But your real world isn’t ready to face the face behind the real me
Time to think it over- I’m over trying to over-think, I’ve had enough
Everybody’s limited to what’s on their mind…

THE SPIDERS COME IN SIDE BY SIDE
TWO BY TWO AND NIGHT BY NIGHT
WHO IS FOOD AND WHO IS THROWN AWAY?

Make yourself a martyr’s pet and watch them all escape
Make yourself at home instead- you’ll lose your toxic waste

…Go in alone, suffer for your feelings, I’m not enough
But everyone’s a little bitter all the time…

THE SPIDERS COME IN SIDE BY SIDE
TWO BY TWO AND NIGHT BY NIGHT
WHO IS FOOD AND WHO IS THROWN AWAY?

 

Orphan

I wept when I realized there were no more demons left to conquer
An opportunity to show my feelings with skin so thick you swear it was armor
A penitentiary that only lets the oxygen out
I wasn’t ready for a version of the truth to get out
I’m getting desperate- I wouldn’t want to fester in another bad dream
I am a Man of Extremes- I found the Flesh and I’m liking it
I’ll put an end to all the fucking psychobabble
We eat the Meat cause the Meat had a soul
We take the lives cause to hurt makes us whole
I AM NOT THE SAME/YOU NEVER HAD A CLUE OR KNEW MY NAME
YOU WANT TO KNOW THE STORY? TAKE MY PAIN-I AM READY-THE LIE IS HEARD
I AM NOT THE SAME/YOU NEVER HAD INTENT TO KEEP MY BLAME
YOU REALLY WANT TO KNOW WHO THE FUCK I AM?
I AM THE ORPHAN… THE ONE WHO KILLED YOUR WORLD
Keeping up appearances with acts of attrition
It doesn’t matter cause I know you’ll never listen
Before- you knew it when you saw now you say you never knew it
It was all a big conspiracy
We come together when the Hands of Fate let go
Is there anybody left to fill this hole?
This shit… will never wash off- give yourself a medal… I swear I fuckin’ give up
We’re nothing special, just an accidental tweak of the freak
An evolution of the kennel in the fetish you seek
There’s still a part of me that’s dying in a dumpster
The one who rose is a motherfucking monster
I’ve seen the future and it’s simply burning/ I wasn’t put here to be so discerning
You want the world to be dissatisfied? You don’t care, so why the fuck should I?
Fuck, should I sell myself to stay alive?
I AM NOT THE SAME/YOU NEVER HAD A CLUE OR KNEW MY NAME
YOU WANT TO KNOW THE STORY? TAKE MY PAIN-I AM READY-THE LIE IS HEARD
I AM NOT THE SAME/YOU NEVER HAD INTENT TO KEEP MY BLAME
YOU REALLY WANT TO KNOW WHO THE FUCK I AM?
I AM THE ORPHAN… THE ONE WHO KILLS-THE ONE WHO KILLED YOUR WORLD
Everyone Has Something. Someone Here Has Everything.
Tell me all about it- I love to hear it- the way I ruin everything I touch
I never thought I’d get to say I’m sorry, but then again I think you ask too much
Too White 2B Black/Too Black 2B Blue/Too Sick 2B Me/Too Fucked 2B You
I only wonder if I’ll live to see the end of the road- it always gets me nowhere
I AM NOT THE SAME/YOU NEVER HAD A CLUE OR KNEW MY NAME
YOU WANT TO KNOW THE STORY? TAKE MY PAIN-I AM READY-THE LIE IS HEARD
I AM NOT THE SAME/YOU NEVER HAD INTENT TO KEEP MY BLAME
YOU REALLY WANT TO KNOW WHO THE FUCK I AM?
I AM THE ORPHAN… THE ONE WHO KILLED YOUR WORLD
EVERYONE HAS SOMETHING. SOMEONE HERE HAS EVERYTHING.
I AM THE ORPHAN… THE ONE WHO- KILLS…

 

My Pain

Pain… She Loves Me… Wants Me To Be…
Less Scared- More Free- To Feel More of My Pain…

I’m Your Friend. And I’m Your Shade. Do What You Want. Just Remember It’s For Love.
I’m Your Wall. And I’m Your Rock. Don’t Run Away. Don’t Forget It’s Only
Love.
I’m Your Chain. And I’m Your Lock. There’s No Escape. Just As Long As I Say
Love.
I’m Your Death. And I’m Your Cold. You End With Me. Remember: This Was Never Love.
I’ll Take This. And I’ll Take That.
I’ll Take You Too.
You Can Never Give Too Much…

Pain… She Loves Me… Wants Me To Be…
Less Scared More Free… Pain
Pain… She Loves Me… Wants Me To Be…
Less Scared- More Free- To Feel More of My Pain…

 

Not Long For This World

Cutting or scratching, they scar the same.
The angle is off, the edges are soft… the mark remains.
I know I’m bitter and full of rage
You would be too, what I’ve been through… knowledge is a difficult age

SO DECIDE/TELL ME HOW I’M GONNA DIE/CUZ I’VE ALREADY GONE AWAY
DECIDE/TELL ME HOW YOU LOVED A LIE/IT WASN’T REALLY HARD TO SEE
HARD TO SEE… NOT LONG FOR THIS WORLD

Carving or biting, we bleed for keeps.
Out of control, into the cold, Hell Repeats.
God I’m starving, spreading me thin
Buying a story, my soul was for sale… trust is such an arrogant thing

SO DECIDE/TELL ME HOW I’M GONNA DIE/CUZ I’VE ALREADY GONE AWAY
DECIDE/TELL ME HOW YOU LOVED A LIE/IT WASN’T REALLY HARD TO SEE
HARD TO SEE… NOT LONG FOR THIS WORLD
NOT LONG FOR THIS WORLD

I KNOW*THE SHIT*YOU EAT/There’s nothing mellow in the
DRAMA*YOU LIVE*AND BREATHE/You like your secrets to be
KEPT IN*THE FAM*ILY/You don’t get credit for your
RARE GOOD BEHAVIOR* GO BE A SAVIOR
You don’t seem to get what I’m saying, and I’m sick and tired of explaining
GOOD NIGHT*GOODBYE*GOOD LUCK/There’s nothing worse than a
Ghoul Manifesto… I’m not impressed though

The greatest conclusion that I ever had
Was when I woke up, and said that’s enough… living never felt so bad
You don’t accept it… and I don’t care.
Bury yourself above all your guilt- when you’re ready it’ll be there.

SO DECIDE/TELL ME HOW I’M GONNA DIE/CUZ I’VE ALREADY GONE AWAY
DECIDE/TELL ME HOW YOU LOVED A LIE/IT WASN’T REALLY HARD TO SEE
HARD TO SEE… NOT LONG FOR THIS WORLD
NOT LONG FOR THIS WORLD
NOT LONG FOR THIS WORLD

I WAS NOT LONG FOR THIS WORLD

 

Solway Firth

Today, up on this hill, I’m counting all the killers
They sway as they swarm, a look of gluttons in their eyes
They mutter as the body loses warmth
They pick your bones like locks inside a tomb
And take great care to not take care of YOU
HERE’S AN UNEXPLAINABLE ONE

While I was learning to live, we all were living a lie- I guess you got what you wanted
So I will settle for a slaughterhouse soaked in blood and betrayal
It’s always somebody else… somebody else was me- you want the real smile?
Or the one I used to practice, not to feel like a failure?
I don’t need you to do it for me/I don’t need you to understand
I don’t need you to hide it from me/ I just want to feel like any other man
I won’t show you the whole story/I won’t show you the aftermath
I won’t show you my allegory
Don’t look away… HERE’S AN UNEXPLAINABLE ONE

I’m not ahead of my time- I just drew the first breath- If I’m alive tomorrow
I will alleviate the pressure… by cutting you out of me
I found my bottom line- dead on the front lines- I know I’ll never go home
So set fire to your ships and past regrets and be free
I don’t need you to do it for me/I don’t need you to understand
I don’t need you to hide it from me/ I just want to feel like any other man
I won’t show you the whole story/I won’t show you the aftermath
I won’t show you my allegory
Don’t look away… HERE’S AN UNEXPLAINABLE ONE
WHAT HAVE YOU DONE?

While I was learning to live, you taught me how to die- I guess I got what I wanted
Another needle in the back through purified scarification
It wasn’t somebody else- you fucking did it to me.
You want a real smile?
I haven’t smiled in years.
